20 years later... the entire cast of Dawson's Creek reunited and we feel old
I don't wanna wait...
Can you believe it’s been 20 years since Dawson’s Creek first aired? We certainly can’t.
From the minute the first episode aired, we were obsessed with everything Dawson, Joey, Pacey and Jen got up to. Who was dating who, what school drama they’d be involved in this week and which guy with Joey would pick? #TeamPacey
Yes, we were obsessed with the teen drama, however, 20 years have passed and the cast are no longer teens – and neither are we.
Reuniting to mark the anniversary, the cast posed for a front page spread in Entertainment Weekly and it has us feeling so nostalgic.

And this wasn’t just one or two cast members either – the actors who played Dawson, Joey, Pacey, Jen, Andie, Evelyn, Mitch, Jack and more all reunited for a special shoot and spoke about their memories of filming the hugely popular show.
“I loved that we were able to in there in those formative years for people,” Michelle Williams said.
“That’s why people, I think, are so connected to it. When something affects you while you were growing up, it kind of stays in there forever.
"When you’re so permeable and open and trying to figure out who you are and what’s going on, whatever reaches you in those moments really become part of you.”

However, while many shows from years past are now getting a new lease on life, it doesn’t look like Dawson’s Creek will be one of them.
“What would we do? One of the reasons we did the finale five years in the future was to put a button on it,” said creator Kevin Williamson.
“What would a reunion be? What would that look like? Why would you? I don’t see it and I don’t feel it. The finale was such a beautiful moment in time and the show was always meant to be a nostalgia piece.
“Let it stay there and live in its nostalgia and its nostalgic universe.”
BRB, just going to watch the entire show from beginning to end again.
